Dear Karen,
We were deeply saddened to hear of your husband's passing through the online Courant. In spite of the loss of Jerome, we can be assured that he rests in peace now. We will keep both of you and your family in our prayers
We also feel badly at not being able to be at St. Catherine's for services, and to offer a bit of support for you. Please know that we shall keep all of you in our thoughts as well next week.
We both look forward to seeing you at church soon after Easter.

With love and prayers. Anita and Colby Thresher
